Our Chicago Run Runners have been part of a running family for two years now at Eli Whitney. This year we had the opportunity to get sponsored by the Chicago Run Program and NIKE.

Students visited the NIKE Company on Wednesday, December 13, 2017. NIKE welcomed our students with food, presenters and a fabulous surprise.

At NIKE, they were introduced to many athletes and met Triathlon athlete Chris Mosier. Our students had a Q & A session with the athletes. Also, the Eli Whitney Runners were able to participate in a marketing project with the NIKE employees. Students had to create a new shoe design, identify their consumers, promote their product using social media and develop their slogan for their product.

The students presented their idea to the NIKE and were provided positive feedback.  Before the visited ended, NIKE congratulated our runner’s success and gave all 25 runners and two coaches a brand new pair of running shoes. The students were elated and surprised by their generosity. THANK YOU NIKE and CHICAGO RUN for the great opportunities and gifts.



Our running club has expanded!

Due to a great amount of interest, we have currently expanded  into two teams.

Ms. Martinez is coaching our 5th /6th team and Mrs. Hedden is coaching our 7th/8th team.

We are nearing the end of the winter season and will complete it with our participation in the St Paddy’s Day 5K on Saturday, March 17, 2018.

  Our students would like for you to join them for the St. Patrick’s Run. 

Wear green to support our Eli Whitney runners.
